The decrease in net income was attributed to the one-time gain of $177,000 on the sale of a former branch building in the quarter ended September 30, 2014. Net interest income before the provision for loan losses decreased by $98,000 primarily due to lower loan balances. The provision for loan losses was $45,000 lower in the quarter ended September 30, 2015 when compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2014 due primarily to lower levels of problem assets lower balances. Operating expenses were lower by $107,000 in the current quarter due to lower costs associated with foreclosed real estate assets. 

Non-performing assets at September 30, 2015 totaled $3.6 million consisting of $2.7 million in nonperforming loans and $0.9 million on other real estate owned, compared to $3.5 million at June 30, 2015, consisting of $2.5 million in non-performing loans and $1.0 million in other real estate owned. At September 30, 2015, the loan loss allowance was $1.8 million, which represented 1.39% of total loans and 66.4% of non-performing loans compared to $1.8 million at June 30, 2015, which represented 1.4% of total loans and 72.3% of non-performing loans. In addition at September 30, 2015, the Bank had a credit impairment allowance of $669,000 that is not included in the loan loss allowance.

Total assets decreased to $165.4 million at September 30, 2015 compared to $169.4 million at June 30, 2015. Cash and cash equivalents decreased $4.5 million while loans increased by $1.6 million, and securities held-to-maturity decreased by $0.8 million Deposits decreased $3.1 million primarily due to a decrease in certificates of deposits and money market accounts.
